Word of Mouth

Okinawa is going in where Nohana Sushi went out

Tall, black temporary walls conceal the specifics, but there's no hiding the fact that something's going on at 2301 East Colfax Avenue, in the John Hand building.

The liquor-license permit application indicates that a restaurant called Okinawa -- we hear it's a sushi joint -- will occupy the space, which has been home to a short list of other Asian restaurants, among them Nohana Sushi and, before that, Sushi Heights.

A public hearing on Okinawa's liquor-license application is scheduled for Monday, August 9 at the Denver Department of Excise and License.
